    Custom Homepage Tiles

    Hello,

    Is it possible to add custom tiles to the 'resources' page, once logged in? I have created a tile to the same dimensions as tiles within the the relevant folder, but when refreshing the page, my custom tile is showing as being much smaller. Any odeas on how to rectify this?

    Thanks.

    In hapConfig, it you need it to be sized at 2, not 1. 1 is small, 2 is medium, 3 is large

    Hi Nick, thanks for this. However, when I change the properties of the width and height properties from 1 to 2, no change in size is observed when changes are saved?

    When looking at the Web.config file within the HAP folder, the section which is featured within the red warning message at the top of the config page when saving changes, contains only the following;

    <location path="setup.aspx">
    <system.web>
    <authorization>
    <allow users="*" />
    </authorization>
    </system.web>
    </location>

    Do I need to add in the <allow roles="Domain Admins" /> line - curious, as would any changes have been able to be made without this line? For instance, changing of the tiles to any of the in-built images? Or does this line not affect this? Thanks.

    That locks the setup page down so only domain admins can edit the config.

    Can you check the hapConfig.xml file and see what is being saved.

    Hi Nick. Thanks for the reply. I checked the hapConfig.xml, and noticed that both width and height were still set to 1 for my custom tile. From changing this to 2, I can see that the original tiles obviously use a value of 1, which means that my '2' tile, is way bigger. Despite ensuring that my custom tile is the size as the other images files (512 x 512), it would seem that the tiles are squashed down in size when live, as the content within my tile seems much smaller - any ideas?


    Also, are there any plans for a native email interface, or can the email tile only be used to link through to say, Outlook Web Access?
